Modi Govt to replace UGC & AICTE with HEERA
 
UGC and AICTE are going to be history soon. With UGC and AICTE are gone, HEERA will regulate technical and non-technical institutions.

Modi government is all set to replace the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) with one higher education regulator, Higher Education Empowerment Regulation
Agency (HEERA).

The move was doing rounds to be implemented since UPA National Knowledge Commission’s period. The idea was to replace multiple regulatory authorities and bring in single regulatory body. The main aim of
HEERAis to take strong action whenever required and end the UGC's "inspector raj and harassment" .HEERA is aimed at eliminating overlaps in jurisdiction and removes irrelevant regulatory provisions.

The detailed blueprint of HEERA and its legislation is still being worked up on. Both Niti Aayog and HRD Ministry officials are working on the plan.

Senior officials told that work is on, at a rapid pace to frame the HEERA legislation. The HRD ministry and the Niti Aayog are working on the new law, confirmed the committee which has, amongothers,NitiAayog CEO
Amitabh Kant and higher education secretary KK Sharma as members.

They are jointly working on the detailed blueprint.

The idea of replacing UGC and AICTE with a single and streamlined one is not new – many committees including the Yashpal Committee and the National Knowledge Commission of the UPA era and the Hari Gautam Committee have recommended the same but the reform never happened.

Although bringing in new legislation and repealing AICTE and UGC Acts may be a time-consuming process but will surely come in form within no time as discussed by the government.

However, this is not the first-of- its- kind decision taken by the government. Various committees in the past have recommended setting up a single body for regulating institutes.
